washington wrote a letter to a woman named sally fairfax in 1759. she was the wife of his best friend, his good friend anyway's neighbor, george william fairfax. this letter suddenly was published in the new york herald, which was at that time in 1877 when it was published it was the biggest newspaper in america. and they've called it a washington love letter. and nobody could believe that it was real at first. and then people who know a little bit about washington's life and stuff, there were some very atchison diaries published. they discovered he had written it better for month after he had become engaged to moffit custis, who was in for the the richest widow in virginia. and this caused consternation in 1877. they couldn't believe that george washington could possibly have thought for another woman. and so, it was like a suspense story as a probe to find out what happened to this letter. and it turned out that the latter never saw the light of day. it was going to be auctioned off of the mystery man body and this appeared for 60 years. and they founded by sheer accident in the files of

of rip van winkle's -- washington irving story, rip van winkle, which i think captures some of the extraordinary changes that took place in this. in 1789 and 1815. in fact, from the revolution to the second decade of the 19th century. irving, who was conservative and conservative sensibilities, wrote the short story which i think is his most famous short story, most of you are familiar with it. in the second decade of the 19th century. i think he was trying to express some of the awesome changes that he had experienced in his own lifetime. and they've been here developed an acute sense that his native land was no longer the same place that it had been a generation earlier. he had his character, as you recall, rip weakened from a street that had begun before the revolution and had gone on for 20 years or so. and when rip enters his own village, he immediately felt lost. the building, the faces, the names are all strange and incomprehensible. the very village wrote irving was largely more populous except among the agent who was no longer tolerated. the very character of the pe

for regulation. on the regional level at the sec. it is only in washington that we have had this problem. and it is not always been the case prior to about ten years ago, the sec was in our estimation the crown jewel of the federal agencies. they knew what they were doing. they knew what they were supposed to do. he knew how to work with all the other players to get the biggest bang for the buck. so it has been very disheartening for all of us from a state security and others to see this occurring. >> okay. mr. holt began. >> thank you and thank you for the witnesses for being with us today. and he began with a standard admiration that we thank you very much for your answers to the questions we get to ask now. it would ask your cooperation as well and answer questions that we would submit and writing after this hearing and look forward to working with you. as a couple of questions that will reveal i know nothing about the kinds of things that you do. i guess the first one goes to you, attorney general madigan which is seems very come in sense to me someone would pay for a mortgage that's

the heat of these statues around the country. only a handful of them survived including here in washington d.c. and also in new york city. if you look at the statue itself, of course it's loaded with symbolism here. mostly symbolizing water. so you see the two dolphins in the middle which are pretty ugly. one came out of their mouths and this is an actual drinking fountain. there was a broad cop. the two cranes on top of the fountain, which of course those are waterbirds. and when it was her upper corner of pennsylvania avenue 100 feet south of us now, it looked across from this very bad neighborhood. so symbolically what the fountain said western water instead of whiskey because whiskey drinking was very prevalent at the time in 1882. >> were do we go from here? >> were going to go hear a pin to chinatown to the smithsonian art museum which is where abraham lincoln had his second non-euro ball in 1865 and will talk about abraham lincoln and his new untempered fire. at the smithsonian american art museum and the portrait art gallery so it's to museums and one. it was renovated asters six y
and due process. 2005 was a different time than now. that was a big deal. i was in washington at the time as a capitol hill correspondent and i remember the stir it caused in washington. defense secretary donald rumsfeld called the report reprehensible. dick cheney said he was offended. . called it absurd. the washington post editorialized that, quote, lately the organization has tended to save its most vitriolic condemnation not for dictators but for the united states and. it was a clear attempt to try to discredit this organization. i have followed washington politics long enough to know that when top officials attack you instead of ignoring you it is because they are scared of you. the white house's attack on the group's credibility for me at that time was a clear affirmation of amnesty international integrity and power. we are talking about look bush administration but it is important to note that president obama signed the national defense authorization act that endorses another attempt by the u.s. government to conduct military commission trial. amnesty international and irene khan

's learning how to be a more effective inside player in washington and dealing with the congress. and that's something that some previous fed chairman, paul volcker, alan greenspan, your time at the fed as vice chairman, you have done a lot of washington before. so i don't think it was a help that he didn't have this experience. but i think that the portfolio skills he had figuring out what to do in this instance was the most important thing that we could have asked for neh chairman at this credibly terrifying moment in our history. >> host: what about his personality? >> guest: i think that's also interesting. you know, alan greenspan, in my view, made it a little bit too much like the vatican. he was the pope that he was invaluable, and those people did know anybody else's name. and bernanke came to washington determined he said at the time to follow greenspan's policy, but to be different and greenspan. i call him in the book to be the un-greenspan. to elevate over the character of the chairman. i think actually that was a bit naÏve. but it did help him build a consensus at the fed. so

"washington journal" continues. host: we are talking with anne kornblut, her book, "notes from the cracked ceiling." >> thank you for having me. host: you say that this is a letdown and drove apart mothers and daughters and setback the equality in the political sphere of decades, why? perception before this election in the bill some kind of unified front among women at least within the democratic party. if there wasn't a bipartisan women's movement necessarily better least the democratic party was delighted and you go back and look what happened hillary clinton did win a lot of women as the democratic primary war she won older women but she split younger women and win sarah palin was on the republican ticket later she was not able to bring over democratic women or even very many independent women as the suspected they might be able to so rather than a groundswell of kind of a women's movement what i look at in the book is the fact it splintered generational a across party lines and even among women elected officials, some of whom went for obama s

washington post wrote on the 2008 campaign. i am sure we have copies in the front tonight. haines was a political reporter with the washington star when i first met him. he has written -- get this -- 16 books. some of which were co-authored with pierce. i was thinking it is a tribute to haines that so many of the books, not a majority but so many were written with other journalists. herb bloch was born in 1909 and he died in 2001. in between, he had a long and glorious career. he joined the washington post after serving in world war ii. his cartoons were so brilliantly thought out that he often defined the time. he is credited with inventing the expression mccarthyism in a 1950s cartoon. he won the pulitzer three times including 1964 after he published the defining cartoon on john kennedy's assassination, lincoln at the memorial weeping. many of her block's cartoons are etched in our memory. this generous book that haines has produced contains many of herlock's drawings and excellent explanatory text. the narrative gives us a historical context for the cartoons especially for peop
